University of Geneva - Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences (SES)
The SES brings together the faculties of the social and economic science departments at the University of Geneva to tackle issues using an interdisplinary approach. It awards the Swiss 'Licence', 'Diplôme d'Etudes Avancées/Supérieures' and 'Doctorat'. It also provides continuing education.
Along with their teaching duties, faculty members study social structures, political processes, economic mechanisms, and the economic and social impacts of commerce and industry. SES's main sections are:
- Section des hautes études commerciales, for business studies;
- Section des sciences économiques, for the study of economics and econometrics;
- Section des sciences sociales, which includes political science, sociology, geography and economic history.
Participants in the Faculty’s seminars and colloquiums include members of both the local and the international community who are interested in social and economic issues.
